Zitate Geoff Dyer

„This book is a ripped, by no mean reliable map of some of the landscapes that make up a particular phase of my life. It’s about places where things happened or didn’t happen, places where I stayed and things that have stayed with me, places I’d wanted to see or places I passed through or just ended up.“

—  Geoff Dyer
Yoga For People Who Can't Be Bothered To Do It (1993), Context: This book is a ripped, by no mean reliable map of some of the landscapes that make up a particular phase of my life. It’s about places where things happened or didn’t happen, places where I stayed and things that have stayed with me, places I’d wanted to see or places I passed through or just ended up. In a way they’re all the same place—the same landscape—because the person these things happened to was the same person who in turn is the sum of all things that happened or didn’t happen in these and other places. Everything in this book really happened, but some of the things that happened only happened in my head; by that same token, all the things that didn’t happen didn’t happen there too. (p. 1).

„Dave was committed to making it a truly memorable weekend in the sense that he would remember nothing whatsoever about it.“

—  Geoff Dyer
Yoga For People Who Can't Be Bothered To Do It (1993), Context: Dave was committed to making it a truly memorable weekend in the sense that he would remember nothing whatsoever about it. “It’s all about moderation,” he said, “Everything in moderation. Even moderation itself. From this it follows that you must from time to time, have excess. And this is going to be one of those occasions.” (p. 152).

„When you are lonely, writing can keep you company“

—  Geoff Dyer
Yoga For People Who Can't Be Bothered To Do It (1993), Context: When you are lonely, writing can keep you company. It is a form of self-compensation, a way of making up for things—as opposed to making things up—that did not quite happen. (p.11).

„Ruins—antique ruins at least—are what is left when history has moved on.“

—  Geoff Dyer
Yoga For People Who Can't Be Bothered To Do It (1993), Context: Ruins—antique ruins at least—are what is left when history has moved on. They are no longer at the mercy of history, only of time. (p. 207).
